A League Of Their Own | 1992 | Dir. Penny Marshall
Racine Peach fan for life.
It is also the kind of closeness with humanity that is lacking in so much of the media. It is celebrities. It is war rather than peace. Conflict rather than solving problems. Love—true love—is almost not there at all. That is the element that I put into all of my filming: love and understanding. It generates a feeling in the viewer of what is actually going on in the lives of people. Their experience becomes the experience of the viewer. Given the right kinds of situations, it can be of great benefit and revelation.
Erica Wexler is Online | 2010 | Dir. Doron Max Hagay | Length: 9:58
A fantastic mockumentary about a modern-age haunting. If Erica Wexler is dead, how is she on Facebook?

SO. SO. GOOD. Mockumentary done right.
I made a few updates to the Filmmaker 411 list over at The Final Image Shorts and it got me thinking about the vastness of the internet in all of its infinite resources. Next up on the list will be a section for female filmmakers + I’m actively scouring the net for more great sites to add.
In the meantime though, does anyone out there know of (or run) any great filmmaking sites that should be on there? Any topic is okay, as long as it relates to film.
Thanks in advance, you wonderful Tumblr folks!

An image across the street
a crackling explosion of poetry
shape shifting with the breeze
a sizzling feat of energy, engulfing me
she become a catalyst,
the pilot light of my dreams
Get out of my main character’s head.
My Josephine | 2003 | Dir. Barry Jenkins | Length: 8:09
Refreshing and hypnotic, My Josephine is a film that not only captures, but evokes a certain feeling deep within. There’s a romanticism found in the beautifully mundane, a fragmented and lasting sense of a bleeding American heart show.

Y’all. This one blew. me. away.
A Man Who Delivers | 2012 | Dir. Jamie Jessett | Length: 6:34
An anonymous drug dealer takes us into his world for a day in this atmospheric, vigilante-esque documentary. After having superimposed personal texts throughout the film, the separation of these final images add a certain weight to the moment it all comes crashing down.
Watch it [HERE]
The nighttime sequence at the end of this one is pretty fantastic.
